Oavsett is the name of our schoolproject abroad. This is where you can keep track of what we’re doing during our stay in Finland & Sweden.
We are Hugo de Kok, Kay van Vree & Edwin Haverkamp. We study video/motion graphics/vfx at the Utrecht school of the Arts in the Netherlands.
From May till the end of June we will be staying at Floda31, near the city of Umeå in Sweden.
Oavsett means regardless in Swedish and it’s easier to type for Dutch people than most of the IKEA furniture.
We have experience with filming, editing, visual effects and animation. We can cover the whole process, from the idea to the final video.
Do you think we can help you out with a project while we’re in Sweden? Commercial or non-commercial, feel free to contact us.
